Marina Antunes [Celluloid 08.28.17] Belgium scifi drama



Writer/director Mateo Gil is best known for making pensive dramas about big ideas and his latest project is no different.


We had a chance to review Realive when the movie premiered last year at Fantasia Film Festival and it was recently announced that SyFy was planning to release the movie in October and in preparation for that release, they've released a trailer for the cryo sci-fi film which stars Tom Hughes as Marc, a young man who is diagnosed with a terminal illness.


Unable to accept his death, Marc opts to have his body frozen until his illness can be cured and in 2084, he becomes the first cryogenically frozen man to be revived in history.



As is typical with Gil's previous movies, Realive is a slow-burn, pensive drama about the perils of wanting to live forever and the much more immediate side effects of the hardships of reanimation. I found it to be a beautiful and, perhaps most surprisingly, sad, observation on life.


Realive opens theatrically on September 29 and will be available on VOD and Digital HD on October 3.
